This month, the lovely people at Boxcitement have taken a very on-trend concept for their box theme. One of this season’s biggest buzz words is ‘Hygge’ (pronounced hue-gah), and it is a Danish word that is usually translated as ‘cosiness’.
In essence, hygge means creating a nice, warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people around you. The warm glow of candlelight is hygge. Friends and family – that’s hygge too. And let’s not forget the eating and drinking – preferably sitting around the table for hours on end discussing the big and small things in life. In effect, it is the little simple things that work together to make life a little better and happier.
So – what’s in the box??
First, we have quite possibly the loveliest pair of socks that I have ever owned – so pretty and soft and cosy!!
Next up is this stylish acrylic tealight holder and candle. (I love the little touch of washi tape around the tealight!) The holder is in two pieces and there is a hanging hole on the patterned piece so it can be hung as a decoration too – it would look pretty hung in the window with the light shining through.
Boxcitement love designing gorgeous cards for their boxes and we have a couple here:
This is a double sided print (a fun sheep design on the reverse!) – I like this side best and will get this framed up and displayed over the winter season.
Little notebooks are always useful, and I love this cute cat door hanger (the other side is sweet too!)
Finally, a felted star with wooden beads to clip onto your jacket or wherever you need a little hygge – I have clipped mine onto my handbag. Love the presentation of this and will have to find a use for the zipper pull too (waste not, want not).
This is a lovely collection of items that certainly capture the hygge theme – perfect for this time of year. It would make a wonderful Christmas gift for someone or a cheery surprise for a friend who is feeling a bit under the weather.
As this is Black Friday weekend, you can get a special offer on the Boxcitement website, but you must be quick as the offer ends on Monday 28th November.
Thanks for peeking inside the box this month with me – can’t wait to see what December brings!!!
